The Birdmen Come Close to Flying Off Norway’s Fjords

Vodpod videos no longer available.

60 Minutes had an interesting segment recently about a group of thrill seeking daredevils that have been named Birdmen and after watching this video, it’s not surprising how they got this moniker. They don wing suits (fully explained here) and have basically been jumping off of Norway‘s most famous and beautiful mountains into fjords. You can’t actually call it flying because once they jump, they never gain any air, but they do attain forward speeds of 140 miles per hour before they have to pull their parachute. The video is quite spectacular between the views from the mountains and the cameras set up on the Birdmen themselves.

Enjoy
